The Future of Health Tech

Health care is an important aspect that needs to get a boost from technology. The emergence of digital and mobile technology has redefined our outlook and has changed the way we live our lives. Technology can impact our lives in a way that it can cause a paradigm shift. If you happen to be alive 10 years from now, you may be able to tell that the ubiquitous tech of the future is just figments of the imagination before. Here are some potential advances that may happen in the future that will improve the standing of people’s health and the health care industry as well.

Celiac disease will be controlled

Celiac disease or gluten intolerance will be a thing of the past. There would be better diagnosis and there would be gadgets and apps that may detect gluten in the food. It is likely that in the future before you will eat something you are informed about the gluten content of the food. A gluten intolerant person will pop a pill to mitigate the effects of the allergy including anxiety symptoms that are related to the disease. The cross-contamination with the use of spoons that has gluten will no longer be a problem. This is a problem now because a person will inevitably mix the serving spoons and contaminate the non-gluten food with gluten.

Diabetes will become manageable

In the future, diabetes will still be there. But life for diabetics will be much easier. Testing for blood glucose will be easier due to skin sensors that can detect rise or drops in the blood sugar levels. The corresponding reading will be fed to an app that will inform the patient of the blood sugar levels. Artificial pancreas will be developed and can be transplanted. Also, artificial kidneys will also become available for diabetics that are suffering from troubled kidneys or renal failure.

The rapid pace at which technology is changing and evolving can either cause much stress or relieve one from anxiety.
